Oddset Sportwetten GmbH has become the fourth member to join the Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) as an Associate Member.
Securing membership, the German state-owned company will be linked to the GLMS visual identity and overall operations. Oddset will also gain access to summaries of GLMS global alerts for suspicious activity, as well as education and prevention tools.
Commenting on this development, GLMS President Ludovico Calvi stated: “I am delighted to welcome Oddset within the GLMS family. With the recent regulatory evolution, the largest market in Europe will now take further steps towards a full deregulation of the gaming market.
“Sports betting will definitely lead the way in Germany and Oddset will play an important role in the promotion of transparent and socially responsible gaming operations. We look forward to having ODDSET on board and working closely with them with the objective of protecting our core values and acting as a shield against global sport corruption.”
Christof Schoepfel, CEO of Oddset Sportwetten GmbH, added: “We are pleased to make an active contribution to the global lottery monitoring system and also to benefit from the professional services which GLMS provides to the members. As a responsible sports betting provider, owned by and cooperating closely with lottery companies, we feel very committed to the goals of GLMS.
“Every sports betting offer should go hand in hand with the overarching goal of maintaining the integrity of the sport, because only a fair sporting event offers our customers the pleasure of betting. Therefore, we regard it as our duty to support GLMS in the best possible way.”
